Prima Marketing :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

Today I would like to share with you a Step-by-step that I created for Prima Marketing, 
Blogged >>> HERE .
Layout - LOL

Sept step louise
I like to create mylayouts on a sturdy background as I use layers of wet mediums that would otherwise make cardstock disintegrate. So I begin with a 12 x 12 grey board, which has been spray-painted with white paint.
Sept step louise 1

When the background is dry select desired stencil [Louise just loves this new release stencil by Finnabair] and place on background in desired position.
Sept step 2
Then using a clear embossing inkpad, apply embossing ink over the stencil to create a doily pattern on the background.
Sept step 3

Sprinkle over a good layer of clear fine embossing powder. Shake off excess and then heat set using a heat gun.
Sept step4
As you can see from this close up the stencil pattern isn’t perfect, it is quite abstract! But that is okay as it fits perfectly with the ‘look’ Louise wants to achieve.
Sept step 5
Apply a very liberal coating of chalkboard mist over the embossed area.
Sept step6

Tilt the background ensuring that there is some paper towel to catch the dribbles.
Sept step7
Then with water mister set on spray ‘rinse ‘ the mist off until there is a faint coating of the chalkboard mist. Continue to mist the whole of the background with water until there is a fine coating of water.

Once again apply a slightly less liberal coat of chalkboard mist over the embossed area.
Sept step9
Lay the layout flat, then using the heat gun start to dry the mist and water starting at the centre of the embossed area. As you can see from the picture above it spreads the mist out across the background.
Sept step10
While the background is still slightly damp, mop up the mist and water using the same paper towel used to catch the drips. Don’t be too particular and concentrate on leaving patches of the mist colored to create a free-style pattern of color that extends out from the embossed area.
Sept step 11
When you have finished blotting up some of the colored mist, re-wet the centre of the embossed area with the water mister.
Sept step12
Using the same paper towel blot away some of the colored mist from the centre of the embossed area. This will help to subtly highlight some of the embossed pattern.
Sept step 13
You can now allow the background to dry naturally before completing it or dry it off gently with a heat gun.
Well, I do hope you liked that technique.
Sept step louise2
I encourage you too have a try; but please not to get discouraged if it doesn’t look the same or as good as you would like it. I NEVER knows how her layout backgrounds are going to look when they are finished! I just love the process of creating, and experimenting, and going with the flow to see what evolves.
